Dubai – Mubasher: Emirates and Vietnam’s Jetstar Pacific have closed a codeshare agreement, building on the present partnership between the UAE mega-carrier and Jetstar Group.
The new deal connects Emirates passengers to 14 Vietnamese cities beyond Ho Chi Minh City and six cities beyond Hanoi, according to a company statement.
“We are pleased to further extend our partnership with Jetstar Group to include Jetstar Pacific, allowing Emirates’ customers to benefit from enhanced connectivity to numerous destinations in Vietnam and beyond,” Emirates’ divisional senior vice president of strategic planning, revenue optimisation and aeropolitical affairs, commented.
Emirates passengers will be also able to fly from Jetstar Pacific’s hub to Singapore and Bangkok, using these destinations as connections while continuing their flights to Brisbane, Melbourne, or Sydney, Emirates said.
“This codeshare is another way we are fulfilling our promise to make the world more accessible, by giving Emirates’ customers access to our growing Vietnamese network,” Jetstar’s executive manager for networks and partnerships Alan McIntyre remarked.
